Orange Shirt Day
We encourage parents to go the official Orange Shirt Day website to learn more about this important day. http://www.orangeshirtday.org/
Here is a link to the origins of Orange Shirt Day http://www.orangeshirtday.org/phyllis-story.html .
Please take the time to look at these resources and discuss this with your child. Expect that discussions on the topic of residential schools will happen in your child’s classroom. We have had many discussions about how to have these conversations in an age appropriate way but we are also aware that challenging topics can have unexpected impacts on children. Please feel free to contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the classroom teacher if you have any information that might help us better support your child on this or any other challenging and important conversation that we have at school.
